Abstract

Sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis (SEP) is a rare entity. There are well established secondary causes for this condition, but primary SEP is rare. This is a case report of SEP occurring in a 52- year-old female who is diabetic. She did not have any other risk factors for the development of this condition. Therefore she was diagnosed to have primary sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis.
